On ‘Tickets @ 2′ this afternoon listen for “Crazy Little Thing Called Love” by Queen.
Freddie Mercury wrote it while Queen was touring Germany. The idea came to him while taking a bubble bath in his room at the Munich Hilton. Peter Hince, the head of Queen’s road crew, recalled to Mojo magazine in September 2009: “The idea for the song came to him while bathing. He grabbed a guitar emerging from the bath and worked out the chords there and then.”
It sounded more like Elvis than Queen. It was a different sound for the group, and fans loved it, charting at the top of the chart at #1!
When we play it between two and three we’ll take caller # 7 at 1-800-232-KRTH (5784) to win a pair of tickets to see the classic musical “Singin’ In The Rain,” performed by the Pacific Symphony Thursday May 9th at the Segerstrom Concert Hall.
